I'm trying to format a column to display different things for each song depending on the playlist it is in.

CODE
$ifgreater($strstr(%playlist_name%,Rating),0,%artist%,)


Is there a variable for playlist_name? I've seen some references to it by Google but I cant get it to work. I basically want to set my artist column so that it doesn't display except on certain playlists.

Thanks.

If either this page or this page is any reliable indication that the variable was once present, I'm inclined to believe that it was previously available in earlier foobar versions or it wouldn't have been included in either page. Both pages are clearly marked as being title formatting references with no mention of additional components being needed for using the title formatting listed therein.

Furthermore, upon researching the component you mentioned, I've thus far found no mention of %_playlist_name% as ever being one of the variables provided by that component.

Not the same string, but this is what it was called, not that it matters much today:
QUOTE
%cwb_activelist% - active playlist name
%cwb_playinglist% - playing playlist name
